EOD multifunctional robot by Christopher Jones

EOD multifunctional robot

I did some work in Bomb Disposal in 2002-2003 and got the bug for useful humanitarian robots that
get rid of exlosives and other hazardous materials. I closely modelled this robot on EOD robots
currently used in the USA and Europe. The robot can be controlled manually or automously by means of
a PC, I'm currently working on a vision system for it. The robot is interfaced to the PC or
controller via a radio link. Specs are as listed below:

Control mode: Manual / Fully autonomous
Sensors : Colour video camera, PIR sensor, Light sensor,
ultrasonics, magnetic odometry sensors, metal detector
Outputs : Rugged tracked drive system, 2DOF camera mechanism,
Laser for guidance, headlamps, reverse lights
Features : Inertial navigation, night vision, dual shock feedback
Language : C++ 6.0
OS : Windows XP
Cost : About £500.00
